Can you get heavy metal poisoning from scrubbing pans?

I have a job as a dishwasher and sometimes I have to scrub these metal pans with scratchy pads to get the grease and foods stains off.

It seems like when I scrub I smell a metalic smell and I wanted to make sure I'm not poisoning myself.

Weird question, sorry

Any information would be appreciated!

Thanks :)


i highly doubt youre at risk for lead poisoning

how often have you heard of any dishwasher getting ill from what they do?

chances are youre washing things made of iron or copper which react to the oils on human skin and create the smell youre describing

i believe you should be fine

why egg white and milk can be an antidote to heavy metal poisoning?

Heavy metal salts act to denature proteins in much the same manner as acids and bases. Heavy metal salts usually contain Hg+2, Pb+2, Ag+1 Tl+1, Cd+2 and other metals with high atomic weights. Since salts are ionic they disrupt salt bridges in proteins. The reaction of a heavy metal salt with a protein usually leads to an insoluble metal protein salt.
This same reaction is used in reverse in cases of acute heavy metal poisoning. In such a situation, a person may have swallowed a significant quantity of a heavy metal salt. As an antidote, a protein such as milk or egg whites may be administered to precipitate the poisonous salt. Then an emetic is given to induce vomiting so that the precipitated metal protein is discharged from the body.  (+ info)
